Abstract Art

I've been away for so long!  I'm so glad I have something fun to post today.  We moved to a new home a couple months ago, so I've been working on DIY home type projects.  Today I finished my abstract art.

I literally just finished about 30 mins ago.  I can't wait for it to dry so I can hang it up.  This was inspired/guided by Style Me Pretty.  Their version is a bit lighter in color....I'm still learning to mix colors to get it exactly what I want.  And I'm very heavy handed with the paint and with movement. Here's my work in progress:

I learned that I like using a spoon to dollop the paint on and spread it around.  So there it is.  Supplies cost me approx. $80.  But I have paint brushes now for future projects and a lot of paint colors left to play around with on my next painting.
